I hope I am at the end of the headaches. Our company has Premiere Pro 2.0. We had purchased a nice green screen and professional lighting. We even bought a light meter. The green screen was about 110-130 Foot Candles evenly lit all the way across by using 2x500 watt tungsten (4 total) on each side with diffuser umbrellas. We did not use a backlight. Our talent was about 5 feet in front of the green screen.
The video appears very grainy and almost flickery sometimes so I am wondering if there were some settings wrong with the camera (Canon XL-2) when it was taped.
The keying software within premiere seems incredibly crappy and hard to use, just like everything else in premiere. I am seriously beginning to think premiere is just a big pile of crap. Ulead Video Studio 11.5 seems to kick the crap out of it so far! I used premiere 7 years ago and it seems like it has gotten worse, I thought it was tough back then and now I just think they have no clue how to design a UI.
If I buy composite pro will I be able to use this with teh crappy premiere software? How does this work? I have been searching and in the chat room but cannot find the answer. The promo video said it would work with Premiere.
Green bleed is heavy on the talent? What should the foot candle reading be on my greenscreen?
I can upload sample, will that help?
